Sitting by my door
watching traffic past
thinking of cares
and what He said

cast your care on me
made me stop to think
how big are Gods shoulders
to carry peoples cares

not just one person
not one grain of sand
carries it all
like the sandy beach
on the shoulder
like a shawl

how does he do that
its a mystery
yet he invites
come to me
and cast your cares
as fishermen do nets
is not always easy

teach me how
to do this
sometimes i forget
i must do my part
in life
but cares you tell me too
cast them on you
